We are proud and excited to introduce Catherine Kirkendall, our Hagar USA’s new Executive Director.

Some of you will recognize that Catherine is no stranger to Hagar, having worked for Hagar Cambodia in 2012 – 2013 as Relationship Manager, and then serving as a Project Manager for Hagar USA from 2014 – 2015, and finally as Development Director for Hagar USA from 2015 – 2016. In the interim, Catherine has worked as Director of Development for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and as the Interim Executive Director for the NGO Reach Out Orphanage Ministries (ROOM). In each of these roles, she has been instrumental in growing the organizations’ funding. Catherine has formal qualifications in NGO management, journalism, and communications.

Catherine has a real passion for the work of Hagar and is excited to take Hagar USA to the next stage in its journey to free and heal more communities of the trauma associated with trafficking, slavery, and abuse around the world. Catherine will celebrate four years of marriage to her husband Matt later this year. They have one child and are expecting their second early this summer. Catherine and Mike are also active in their church in Southern Shores, NC.

Please join us in welcoming Catherine Kirkendall into this critical role.
